ImpactAlpha, February 27 – Professional development and coaching firm Landit has raised a $13 million Series A funding round led by WeWork. The company partners with companies to engage women and professionals from diverse backgrounds and help them plan and navigate career growth.

Landit’s founder Lisa Skeete Tatum launched the company in 2015 based on her own experience trying to chart a career change after more than a decade in venture capital.

“First, we’re solving the problem of access. The career playing field is not level,” Skeete Tatum told ImpactAlpha as part of our New Revivalist series with Village Capital. “Second, we’re unlocking talent. There isn’t one leader in today’s world that doesn’t understand the importance of leveraging everyone in their workplace.”

In addition to investment from WeWork, Landit’s Series A was backed by New Enterprise Associates, Valo Ventures, Workday Ventures and Gingerbread Capital. A number of Landit’s seed investors also re-upped their commitment to the company.
